Unable to swap Bars since Oakensoul Release?

Hi all.

I've noticed lately that ever since Oakensoul has been released and implemented into the game, whenever I run into a big fight I cannot swap my bars. I'm stuck on one bar until the game decides to let me swap. I asked a few guildmates who also run in Cyro and it's happening to them as well. I was just curious if this is a cross-platform issue or maybe it's just happening on our end (PS4/5 NA server). Either way, I hope it gets fixed soon since it's definitely making PvP more unplayable than it currently is most of the time.

    I have had pretty consistent issues with bar swapping the whole time I've played on Xbox. It doesn't help that it's the left d-pad button on my Xbox Series X controller which means that I have to take my thumb off the movement stick to press it in the 1st place (really stupid design, I'll have to look into the other controller schemes but I remember hating them all).

    I press the left d-pad button all the time and my bar doesn't swap. It's only if I press it really slowly and not much action is happening at the time that it works. This issue causes I'd say about 80% of my deaths in PVP. I'm not a perfect/elite player but this causes me to die quite a bit.

    I played till summerset on PS4 and performance in cyro went downhill with every patch since release. Nothing new you can't swap bars properly at Primetime.

    This has been an on going issue in pvp for a while and only having one bar makes it significantly easier to fight in pvp.

    With Oakensoul released, bar swap not working is not a bug anymore, but a very profitable feature. Why give up Oakensoul and have 2bars, if you can only use 1 of them anyway thanks to lag?
    Is Bar swap really that difficult or is it difficult because it doesnt work?

    Are you using Pirate Skeleton 2 piece ? It used to be an issue when it procced you occasionally wouldn’t be able to bar swap. (Especially if you weren’t wearing a certain disguise from Alik’r)
